Foodie February 2015: A Travel the World in Books Reading Challenge Event


Foodie February 2015 - A Travel the World in Books Reading Challenge Event to read about the world's best food

It’s no secret my two biggest hobbies are reading and cooking. During our Travel the World in Books Readathon in September, Aloi from Guiltless Reading shared this scrumptious post about Notable Foodie Reads from around the world. I wanted to dive into them and Aloi inspired me to want to dedicate a month to reading books about food.

Thankfully, my lovely challenge co-hosts, I’m Lost in Books and Savvy Working Gal agreed (who doesn’t love good food!) and we are happy to be hosting a Foodie February month for our Travel the World in Books Reading Challenge.

The Goal

Simple: in February, read and review as many food-related books from around the world as you like. Cookbooks, fiction or non-fiction where food plays a major part in the book.

I will also be using this month to join the Foodies Read 2015 Reading Challenge hosted by Vicki from I’d Rather Be at the Beach (also a Travel the World in Books challenge participant). My personal goal is to read at the Short Order Cook level of 1-3 books. 

What cookbooks or books about food can you recommend to me? It’s going to be a delicious month!


  1. Awesome foodie challenges! this. Remember, anyone can also link any foodie post to Weekend Cooking each Saturday or Sunday. I love all this food writing love.

    1. Thanks Beth. I keep forgetting to link up with Weekend Cooking but I always have a foodie post to share! Thanks for stopping by and sharing about Foodie February!

  2. I’m really looking forward to this one. I’m thinking of reading Dan Koeppel’s book Banana: The Fate of the Fruit That Changed the World.

  3. Such a great idea, although I cover food on my blog it is not solely for that purpose ( as you already know). I do love to read and just before Christmas I was lucky to win a book by CJ Morrow “The Finder” which I loved so much that Chris (CJ) gave the sequel if you would like to read them I can send you downlaod copies. The author gave me permission to pass them on .Have a great day!

  4. I’ve been planning to read “Babette’s Feast,” a novella by Danish writer Isak Dinesen (best known for her memoir, Out of Africa); I also plan to watch the 1987 film of the same name. It’s the story of a French woman visiting her spartan relations in Denmark who decides to use her lottery winnings to make an unforgettable meal for her hosts. I will try to finish this in time for the February twitter chat. Food sounds like an excellent theme for traveling the world in books!
